Japan to Continue Friendly Ties with New Leftist Government in Mexico

TOKYO – The government of Japan said on Monday that it would continue to maintain friendly ties with Mexico after leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador won the Mexican presidential elections a day earlier.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga hoped bilateral ties between the two countries – which are celebrating 130 years of diplomatic ties this year – would be further boosted under the new administration.

Suga added that Japan – one of the main trade allies of Mexico with bilateral trade standing at $17.05 billion in 2017 – would monitor the economic and trade policies of the new Mexican government under Lopez Obrador, who has vowed to crackdown on corruption through fiscal and financial discipline.

Important Japanese companies such as Mitsui, Itochu and Mitsubishi have been present in Mexico for six decades and Japan is the main Asian market for Mexican exports, according to the Embassy of Mexico in Japan.

The veteran politician won Mexico’s presidential elections on Sunday with at least 53 percent of the votes, according to the counting of a sample of 7,700 ballots by the National Electoral Institute.

Lopez Obrador’s landslide victory, a historic moment for the country’s left, indicated by exit polls shortly after voting ended, had led the opposition to concede defeat before the results were declared officially.
